SSL certificate on WordPress strore

  • Posted September 27, 2014

Do I need to purchase an SSL certificate for a WordPress & WooCommerce store? My payment processing will go through PayPal, but I would like to have the entire site encrypted.

If you’re going to redirect to paypal and have them handle payment then you don’t need and SSL certificate.

Although it wouldnt hurt if you get one and could give your visitors a little more sense of security.
